Code challenge saying that I have border-radius wrong.

So pretty much I am stuck on the first step and I am not too sure why I am having such difficulty. The challenge is asking me to make a rule with the class .roundy and then assign a border radius of 50% and a width of 150px then use the extend to use it in a new class .img-author. Every time it tells me that I need to set %roundy border-radius to 50% but I believe I have it right.

%roundy { width: 150px; border-radius: 50%; }

.img-author { @extend %roundy; }

Thanks for the help everyone. Lets blame it on pre-work coding brain ;)

%roundy {
  width: 150px;
  border-radius: 50%;

.img-author {
  @extend %roundy;

I not sure of the syntax, but should your class not be called by a period and not a %. So change code to:

.roundy { width: 150px; border-radius: 50%; }

.img-author { @extend .roundy;
